How long have you been in the Chamber profession
One year   
How long have you been in your current position
One year      
What do you love most about your job?
I love the opportunity to get to know member businesses and learn what connections I can make for their success and the growth in the economic development of the region. Representing a chamber that has a very involved membership on councils and committees, I am able to connect with members on a deeper level and increase value to members based on their needs.  
Aside from colleagues at your Chamber, which Chamber Executive has had the biggest impact on your career and how?
I have been fortunate to have attended events at most of the chambers in Chester County when I was part of the business community and was inspired by the leadership.  I appreciate the Executive Directors of the Chambers in the Chester County Alliance who supported me through the transition to leading the ERCC.
What is your Chamber's signature event?
The Exton Region Chamber of Commerce has 4 signature events of the year but are known for our Casino Night in November.
What is your favorite destination outside of the one you represent and why?
It is impossible to choose just one as Pennsylvania is so rich with wonderful destinations...from Longwood Gardens to Heinz Field to the Constitution Center to Lancaster to the Pocono Mountains to Hershey Park. So much to explore!  
When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be a teacher. 
Why is PACP important to you?
PACP is important to me because of the opportunities for personal growth and collaboration the organization provides.
